Oil Change Smell
By Nick Piyanto on

Vehicle

2004 Mazda Mazda6 s 4dr Sports Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Great car, only thing every time I get an oil change, I get a horrible oil smell. I was told it's because of the oil filter being so close to the engine pipe. This definitely should been a recall, since I am a great advertisement when my car is smoking right after an oil change during the hot summer months. It does eventually burn off after around 25-50 miles of driving. Makes the garage smell great after an oil change.

Favorite Features

Great styling, interior, and exterior, can use higher torque, only 198, with 220HP. Shows great, and with a little more HP., say 265, then Mazda would have a real winner. Have a Mazda 6SX, with the choice of using 87 octane.

Suggested Improvements

Torque should be raised to around 250 and fix the oil change smell. All their new 4-cylinder turbos need at least 91 octane.
